The Wiltshire Conservation and Museum Advisory Service will be on hand to showcase the skills and techniques they use to take care of archaeological collections.   Try out some new skills like using x-rays to see through years of mud and corrosion…

You can also ‘get crafty’ with our free children’s workshop where you can make your own Roman Sword or spell your name out on a beaded Roman bracelet.Roman bracelet

Cotswold Archaeology will also be with us on the day to identify any small finds you have hidden at home.  Bring along any interesting artefacts you’ve unearthed and our experts may be able to tell you what it is.

And, if all of that wasn’t enough, Wessex Ulfolc, an early medieval reenactment group, will be with us, bringing history to life.

And don’t forget, it’s all FREE!

 With thanks to the Wiltshire Conservation and Museum Advisory Service, Cotswold Archaeology and Wessex Ulfolc for their support.
